Question about GE JGRP17 Gas Single Oven
Oven will start in Bake mode when cold and heat up, but unit shuts off sometime after it heats for a while. If the set temperature is low, say 200 F, it reaches this temp and sounds the ready beeps. If the set temp is high, say 400 F, it usually shuts off before reaching that temp. Today, it shut off at 285 F. Once it shuts off, it will not re-light until it cools completely down. If you light the broiler first, it burns OK, but if the oven shuts off, the broiler will not light. Checked both igniters and they are drawing proper amps. Checked 3 limit switches noted for this unit - the ones marked 157 and 158 are normally open and 159 normally closed in cold mode. When the oven shuts down, I checked the limit switches and all are in same mode as when it is cold. Checked continutiy across gas valve and it's good. No codes. Any more ideas??

SOURCE: GE JKP27 F2 error
F2 Oven over temp - exceeded 590F with door in unlocked position or 990F with door locked If actual temp condition occurred, look for welded relay contacts or high resistance connection or any cause in the oven temperature sensor circuit

The temperature sensor is bad. The broil element will work even if the temp sensor is bad but the bake element will not. If you measure the resistance across the contacts on the sensor, it should be around 20 ohms, if it is much higher (1000+), then it is bad and should be replaced. It is just as easy to replace as the elements and looks like a small pencil sized rod in the inside top of the oven. Let me know how this works out for you.
